This hefty, 500-page book contains 36 short stories and essays on robots, penned by famed Sci-Fi writer, Isaac Asimov.

Of course, it's Asimov's earliest tales here (written from 1940 to 1960) that remain among the most admired and intriguing in the field of robotics.

This volume also contains numerous illustrations, as well.

*Note* - Isaac Asimov died in 1992 at the age of 72.

I love stories about robots and this book with 18 stories did not disappoint in any way.I even found the Forward' by the author fascinating!The stories were so good,that I would not be able to pick a favorite!

Highly recommended and will definitely be reading more by this author.
